Happy 430 Big Block Day Day - April 30th

Recommended Posts

It's April 30th, which means every Buick owner who has the 430 Big Block engine in their cer has another reason to celibate! Here's to the under appreciated, yet still viable, little brother to the venerable Buick 455.
Go out there today and put some miles on those 430's people!1808972528_CopyofIMG_4903.thumb.JPG.08fa4050796701d04ccd880c18d0b444.JPG

Awesome!  No such thing as a 400 or 455 day!  However there could be a 322 day!  But chances are you could not celebrate with a drive in my neighborhood.

Does that mean my 60 year old untouched 364 should expect a celebration of sorts too?? ?

Either way, love your Riv!?

December 30 could qualify, except in leap years ??

Being it's a 1958 and production began? wouldn't it be 60 years old now depending on build date I guess?

It's all good. ☺️

Had to rev up my Rivi today!

That's what I am talking about! I changed the oil in mine and took the Aqua Zephyr for a quick spin down the road and back. It was a beautiful day to take the Riviera for a drive! ?

That's a 67 in Sapphire Blue I believe (sorry for jumping in Ted).  Here's a familiar 67 Electra in the same color (but different light), and of course the 430!

Aside from leap years, December 30 is day 364 of the year.
